Default From the Holy Mountain

Dear Friends,

I am not very good at self promoting (neither do I like it), but I thought that this may be of interest to some members..

st month I've made a pilgrimage the Holy Mountain of Athos, in Greece. I've spent almost a week there and although photography was not the main reason of going there, I've managed to bring home a nice pile of exposed film.

I would like to share with you my "view" of this extraordinary place. You may visit the GALLERY (The stack of negatives will apparently provide me with much amusement as well as toil in the dakroom for weeks and months to come, so it would not be a bad idea to check the site again later.)




You are welcome to visit also the rest of the website, there is some new work there as well.

Thank you

Andrej

Thanks for posting these, Andrej. I really enjoyed looking at them. It looks like a beautiful, peaceful place, and your pictures certainly capture that atmosphere.

Alex

Andrej, this work is really beautiful. First, for a week long project you've managed to collect a very fine selection of images. I'm also guessing you've been developing and printing like a madman.
The variety of tones in the prints is lovely. Lith, in the hands of someone who knows how to use it, can be very expressive.
I also enjoyed the 'Silence' gallery very much.
I admire your commitment and talent Andrej.

thank you for putting this together, Andrej.
I've been very much admiring your interpretation of the Holy Mountain from what I've seen so far and it's nice to see them collected like this.

Also, I didn't know you frequented these parts. Hi!

Thank you indeed. Well, sometimes it happens to me, that the best images come when I am not just concentrating making images themselves, just being where I am, trying to be full in the presence of the time and place, watching and listening - and just having the camera and clicking the shutter without worrying too much whether the neg will be perfect or less so... As I said, photography was not the main goal of my journey there...

(But you are right about "printing like a madman" - these were some pretty intensive and long sessions in the darkroom - not rarely ending at 2 or 3 AM... )

Cheers, Jonas, I don't know about my interpretation, the Agion Oros is too big for interpreting. And I don't care for analyzing, let's just say that these are my impressions, sometime maybe wishful, of the world that is now near to extinction... To make a true picture of the place today one would have to photograph also the roadworks, buses, 4x4s...

Thank you, Clive... For me it is difficult to pick a favourite.. But looking at the images and carrying them in from of my mind's eye, I still do walk those paths in my memory...
